Sadobabies - Runaways in San Francisco


Published 1988


The day-to-day life and expressive culture of a group of runaways in San Francisco in one of the first "no-budget" 8mm video documentaries. The runaway teens created a cohesive family on the streets; their mistreatment of "sadobaby" dolls mirrors they way their abusive parents treated them. Made from 1986 to 1988 by videographer and folklorist Nancy Kalow; produced by Nancy Kalow and writer/social worker May Petersen. Special Jury Trophy:
San Francisco International Film Festival. Gold Hugo: Chicago International Film Festival.

Nice film. I've been on the streets in SF, except I was more a traveler and these people stayed just in SF it seems. Interesting. It shows that anglo-street mentality shared by many punkish runaways. Or maybe "Run-away" isnt a good word. "Chased-away" sounds better.
